Who Are The Ad Wizards That Came Up With This?

Attention faithful readers of Nuestra Vida Dulce, your regularly scheduled blog has been hijacked! That's right ladies and gentlemen, Dave of DaveandJoi is making his voice heard. You may be asking yourself, "what does that mean for me, a fan of Nuestra Vida Dulce?" This means no mention of home decor or the like, but rather something that really matters: French Onion Dip.

Not too long ago I was sent out to get some gas, chips, and french onion dip. So I went to the local gas station where all three could be purchased and I succeeded....or so I thought. Upon returning home, I discovered that there are 2 different types of French Onion Dip, and they are not similar, AND I got the wrong one. I had purchased Lays French Onion Dip when I was sent out to purchase Dean's French Onion Dip.

I was immediately sent back out to correct my mistake. Comedian Mitch Fatel explains this phenomenon much better than I can. Watch, enjoy, and learn.

Now the fault of this event does not fall with me not knowing which of the two different products with identical names, nor is it the fault of my wife for not specifying which of the two different products with identical names I was supposed to buy. Nay, faithful readers, it is the fault of the "man", the ad "wizards", the "suits", the "powers that be" that allow these two products to coexist in a world to confuse simple-minded, non-condiment using people like myself.

We need a grassroots campaign to make our voices heard, our voices that are saying "We will not allow two different products to share a name and mislead consumers who are only trying to make the right purchase for their wives/husbands/loved ones. We will not stand by and allow our grievances to go unheard!" We may want to shorten what our voices are saying to "Don't mislead because of your greed!"

I now place the emphasis on you, yes you! It is now your patriotic duty! We must end this travesty at once!

Oh, Dave.

You're wonderful. And so are your funny, funny (true) words. I agree about the "Dave's Corner" idea, C! But, Dave, please make sure Joi clears all photos posted. However, you did a fine job this time. I just worry about guys getting too comfortable posting on their wives' blogs. That's all I'm saying.

So wait, you DIDN'T comment on the sofa, though. Are you sure you don't want to share your feelings about that sofa slipping away?

Suzie said...

LOL! That was hilarious! Have to share with DH! I've never tried Dean's dip, I want some now!

Dave- I loved the commentary and hope to hear from you more. I agree with the posters above that you should have your own "corner". And yes, the wives tend to run their husbands around for stuff and it needs to be EXACT!!! Just wait, because it only gets worse when women are preggo....
